I just wanted to let you know that I’m in the middle of riding my bicycle from Stone Harbor, NJ to Los Angeles, California 🌊🚴🏼♂️🌊 in an attempt to raise $10,000 for Bell Socialization. As you may know, Bell runs York County’s family homeless shelter and does so much for countless people across our region. I’m happy to report that, thanks to the generosity of people from all over York County (and even some folks around the U.S.), we’ve already raised $7,500 towards the goal of $10,000 for Bell. And 🔵 I’ve only traveled in 5 states so far!
During this solo coast to coast journey by bicycle, I’m staying in a tent (mostly in state parks, campgrounds and BLM land where permitted), eating freeze dried food and enjoying the ride. The weather in the Appalachian Mountains is beautiful right now. Great Smoky Mountains National Park is coming up soon!

Note 1 – No, I’m not riding an “ebike” or electric bike. 🙂 This is strictly traditional pedal power.
Note 2 – In an abundance of caution, I will not be revealing my exact location. All posts are made a number of days after actual events.
